After his huge knockout victory over two division world champion Juan Manuel 'Juanma' Lopez, the always durable Velez had a great showcase in May in California, where he lost a decision to Golden Boy Promotions super prospect Ryan Garcia .

For his part, Cruz comes back to recover ground after losing to Terry Flanagan and José 'Wonder Boy' López, and managing to get a very important draw against prospect Lamont Roach in April at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico.
